This month we are pleased to welcome back Scott Taylor to full-time employment.
Scott has been a valued employee at Shred Station for 5 & 1/2 years, originally a shredding operative on the mobile shredding trucks he has now joined the administration team.
In August 2012 Scott, age 23 at the time, received the devastating news that he had been diagnosed with Soft Tissue Rhabdomyosarcoma, a form of cancer.
In the following months Scott had to undergo gruelling treatment in his battle against cancer including chemotherapy and an intense 26 cycles of radiotherapy. While Scott received the positive news that he was disease free in March 2013 he unfortunately lost the sight in one eye and also had to continue with maintenance chemotherapy until August 2014.
Scott has remained in contact with us throughout his ordeal and had this to say to Simon Franklin, Managing Director, on his return “I’m really happy to be returning to work full-time. Simon has been incredibly supportive throughout my treatment and I’d like to thank him, and the rest of the company, for their support through the challenges I’ve had to face.”
Recently we wrote about Scott raising money for the Royal Marsden by taking part in the Marsden March. He was keen to give something back as a thank you to the hospital and managed to raise a fantastic £3,298 by completing the sponsored walk.
